Thursday, November 19, 2020 – This past weekend Canadian actor, producer and director, Dan Levy, best known as the star and co-creator of the Emmy award winning Schitt’s Creek, urged his fans to donate to the University of Alberta’s faculty of Native Studies using Anthology’s Encompass Online Giving module. Tweeting out a link to the university’s online donation page, powered by Encompass, Levy also posted a video announcing that he is willing to match donations up to $25,000.
“I have spent the past 13 weeks taking the Indigenous Studies course through the faculty of @UANativeStudies at U of A,” Levy revealed on Twitter this past Sunday. “The weekly discussions we had were nothing short of transformational. Help me support the faculty by donating here: uabgive.ca/NSFund.”
The Encompass Online Giving module enabled the University of Alberta to capitalize on Levy’s philanthropic efforts on their behalf, enabling him to use an easily shareable link, specific to the institution’s fundraising endeavors in support of the faculty of Native Studies. The Encompass platform also provides quick and efficient reporting which will aid in the matching donations that Levy has generously offered to make.
Levy explained that his desire to give back was not only inspired by the courses he recently took, but also the knowledge that this faculty is one-of-a-kind. “The faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta is the only faculty of Native Studies in North America.” Levy told his fans. “I am urging all of you to donate, if you can, to the faculty. And I am going to match you, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000. So, that is a lot of money we can raise, for an incredibly deserving faculty.”
